Explore what makes relationships respectful.
Being an ally means that you respect and accept a person for who they are. Allies are supporters, friends and helpers who are willing to celebrate differences and share in the struggles of those they are supporting. You don’t need to personally know someone to be an ally to them. Your words, actions, and attitudes show others that you are a supporter, and can encourage others to be an ally too.
